Blow ! Wenger Personally Confirm The Exit Of This Highly Rated Striker

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail,
Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

According to Eduardo Fernandez-Abascal of IB Times, Deportivo la Coruna have approached Arsenal with a £9m bid for Lucas Perez.

The Spanish club are now awaiting a reply from Arsenal, as they look to bring one of their favourite sons back to his homeland.

The Gunners signed the 28-year old for £17m last August, but despite putting up an impressive display, Wenger never deemed it fit to use him more often as the French boss considers the likes of Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck more suitable.

The Striker’s furstration at his current situation was made plain when stories began to emerge from local press about how Arsenal had prevented him from moving to China at a point in time, and assigning his shirt number 9 to new signing Alexandre Lacazette without consultation.

Selling him for that price would represent a significant loss for the club, but as he’s unwanted by Arsene Wenger and desperate to leave, it seems like a reasonable solution all round.
